and that was incidentally first initiated and passed by joe biden. so she's the right person for to appoint whom we should do next. assault weapons falls within the bounds of the second amendment and so does everything else we are urging. this isn't a constitutional question, it is of political courage. the supreme court that defines what the constitution means and says has ruled that reasonable regulations are consistent with the second amendment so when the government raises the second amendment is nothing more than a red herring. it's time for the second amendment defenders in congress to call them to read that three measures i mentioned require background checks for all the gun sales making gun trafficking if federal crime and limiting military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. we require leadership from the president and members of congress but there are other steps president obama can take without congressional approval. if any time he chooses with just the stroke of a pen. vice president biden understands this and we hope his recommendations will include at least these four steps t

[laughter] so this is my topic, and i will say this, that in consideration of comprehensive background checks, what gun shows can tell us is what private parties sales look like. this is going to be -- the post lecture. it's the lecture with no data. i believe there are three numbers and one decimal point in the talk. [laughter] yeah. they actually, in the original agenda, it was the lunch talk. and that the ver
